John Krasinski, the writer/director/star of this year’s breakout hit, A Quiet Place, just hinted that the sequel may not follow the Abbott family of the the original film. Instead, the movie could take place during the same time frame as the first one and focus on the other survivors alluded to throughout the film.
Speaking with Deadline, Krasinski said that he did not have any ideas for a sequel when he initially began working on A Quiet Place:
“To be perfectly honest, it was never really on my mind while we were making it. I never really thought of it as an expanded world; I always thought of it as a one-off.”
